Inter Milan striker excited with Chelsea links

Inter Milan striker Ivan Perisic is excited to be linked with a transfer to Chelsea, according to the Croatia star’s agent.

Various footballers are thought to be on incoming Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte’s list of potential targets for the summer as the Italy coach prepares to take over from Guus Hiddink in the next few months.

Perisic only joined Inter from German side Wolfsburg last summer but, with the Serie A outfit looking likely to miss out on qualifying for Champions League football this season, the futures of some of the club’s players has been cast into doubt.

Perisic’s agent, Tonci Martic, has admitted that his client would welcome talks about a prospective move to Chelsea but insists that no such negotiations have occurred yet.

“To be linked to a club like Chelsea and a manager like Antonio Conte is very exciting for Perisic,” Martic told Goal.

“The Premier League is the best league in the world and Chelsea is a massive club so we would happily talk about it but a deal is far at this moment.”
